Notes/Commercial Description:
A style of ale that was fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hop, hops, and more hops! This ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmasters choice.

Known as Red Betty IPA in the United States.

I got this in Philadelphia and the can reads as "Red Betty."

The beer comes in a dark rich amber, almost ruby color with a fluffy white head.

The aroma has grapefruit, a bit of caramel malt, and tons of pine, some spiciness. A very clean hoppiness. Very deep dank pine in there and a bit of alcohol in the end.

The flavor starts of some caramel malt. Then there is just lots of grapefruit, dank pine, huge flavor, lots of lasting bitterness. A hop juiciness that keeps the beer clean and not too cloying bitter. This beer is very in your face with the pine and long bitterness.

I had this next to Bell's Two Hearted and preferred this. This is just a fantastic IPA. It packs tons of flavor and also has a good balance of hops and malt. For pine bombs, like Green Flash West Coast, this is where I think it is at. Just a world class IPA.

I had this blind next to Meadowlark IPA and Ithaca Flower Power. This one out with Flower Power in second.
